Brad Walker – Winner Men’s Pole Vault
 
On his strategy coming into the event:
“I came in knowing I had the bye to the Worlds being the defending World Champion so I wasn’t pressed, I wasn’t stressed. I thought everyone would clear 5.70 but I thought I had a good chance to win at 5.75.”
 
On his ability to go higher:
“I was coming off a short approach so I wasn’t close to being at 100-percent of what I can actually jump. I know I can jump significantly higher but I didn’t want to push the approach.”
 
On his schedule between now and the World Championships:I think my next meet will probably be in London, then possible Monaco and one or two other meets to get ready for the World Championships.
